Invictus Education Trust was created in March 2015 by a group of like-minded schools: Crestwood, Ellowes Hall Sports College, Kinver High and Wombourne High School. Two schools have since joined us, Leasowes High School in Autumn 2016 and Pedmore High School in September 2018, further strengthening an already thriving trust.

Where we differ from other multi academy trusts is our intention to collaborate, across our schools, in every aspect.

The next phase for us, in terms of a collaboration, is the launch of the ‘Invictus Culture’. The Invictus Culture has seen all of our schools, and 6th form, adopt a shared vision, mission and set of values.

Invictus Culture

The feeling or climate conveyed without a word being spoken.

Invictus Vision

Our aspiration, what our schools and Trust will look like in the future.

Our communities will have access to an outstanding education.

Our schools and 6th form cater for the social, economic and cultural diversity that our country is comprised of and deliver opportunities and experiences that celebrate that diversity.

We are to be locally based, but nationally important.

Invictus Mission

A formal summary of what we do.

We exist to provide our schools with the resources to offer independent minded education to their communities.

 Our academic focus is on progress.

We achieve this with exceptional teaching delivered by outstanding teachers, who are supported by an outstanding team.

We provide our students with unique opportunities and elite experiences allowing them to thrive in whatever they pursue.

Invictus Values

Our principles and standards.

Value One

Every day, in every way, our students come first

Our first and most important value.

Value Two

Anything is possible

We focus on the challenge to identify it, our energy is spent finding a solution.

Value Three


If it is to be, it is to be me. 

Value Four

Seek and seize opportunities

We aim to deliver ‘WOW’ through opportunities and experiences.

Value Five

Focus on relationships and all else will follow

Open, honest and empathic relationships with clear and simple communication are the foundations of our Trust

Value Six

Start with the end in mind

We identify our aspiration and put processes in place to exceed expectations. We celebrate our progress throughout the journey.

Value Seven

Think collaboratively

We always ask ourselves; can we include more students, more of our team or more of our schools in everything we do?
